Advent Calendars: Where to Buy Advent Calendars

I do not remember having one at Christmas in my house as a child, but as one of six things got very fuzzy with all the activity sometimes. We may have had an Advent calendar, but I cannot recall it. I was near the bottom of the totem pole and my chances for participating anyway were slim to none.

When I became a mom and had a child of my own it was great because I was able to develop my own family traditions. I had big plans and pursued every one of them. One of these plans was using an Advent calendar each year.
